    Catalog of Hallmarks on Items in Precious Metals, 1917- 2000 (USSR and Russia).

    Catalog of Hallmarks on Items in Precious Metals, 1917- 2000 (USSR and Russia). N. Troepol'skaya. C. 2006, Moscow. Russian text. Massive volume, 8 1/4" x 10 1/2" x 1 1/2" format, hardcover, 717 pp.

    The book contains a guide to over 22000 individual hallmarks. This extraordinary work is essentially a continuation of the "Russian Gold and Silverwork" by Postnikova-Loseva et al on Imperial hallmarks. However, it has some great additional features. Among them are complete sets of laws and regulations concerning the hallmarks in their 1908, 1947, 1954, 1965, 1995 versions, plus excerpts from later decrees. Seventeen pages are dedicated solely to magnified close-up photos of hallmarks from various periods.

    The main body of the catalog is conveniently organized numerically and alphabetically, with the precise name and location of the maker, assay inspection authority and date of manufacture. There is also a separate table of hallmarks containing graphic symbols, organized chronologically. Lastly, there is an index of the names of all individual workmasters mentioned in the book.

    This book will allow the reader to pinpoint the date of manufacture and maker by practically any Soviet or post- Soviet Russian hallmark. OUTSTANDING and INVALUABLE out of print reference! Absolutely indispensable to anyone collecting early Soviet badges, Russian jewelry, gold / silver watches or period works of art made of precious metals.

    We have only a single copy left, in brand new unused condition. There are some very minor corner bumps acquired in storage and very minor marks to text block. The cover is perfect and fresh otherwise, and the interior pages are simply immaculate.

    Item# 13678
